Typically, families organize Easter Egg Hunts for Easter morning. Those times of laughter and joy as we watch (or maybe even help) our little ones hunt for the brightly colored eggs the Easter Bunny deposited in our yards, or local parks or at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. I remember those times well, but now my children are no longer little, nor are my grandchildren, so coloring and hiding eggs is not in our Easter schedule.
Instead, it seemed to be an appropriate time to go out for an Easter Spring Hunt – a hunt for new beginnings. That’s what Easter is about, isn’t it? New beginnings? I found several, which I want to share with you.
Pretty happy-faced primrose, still in their little pots clustered in the hanging basket. Once their bloom period is complete, they will find their way to a new home in the dirt. For now, they live where I can see them from my morning window or my front deck, and they make me smile and remind me that new beginnings are there.
On another happy note, my dear daughter Kat, who has been trying to find a teaching job in Southern California for a few years now (she got her Master’s Degree just as the economy tumbled into oblivion), has broadened her search and decided to join her brother in foreign school teaching. She has schools in southern South Korea, China and Venezuela interested. Venezuela and South Korea have made offers. We think South Korea may win. New beginnings for her, too. Happiness for me – I love when my kids are feeling good about themselves and their lives!
Wishing for all of you new beginnings, continuation of happiness and lives filled with enough.
